Gretchen Jahn, who briefly was chief of Mooney Aircraft five years ago, is now the chief operating officer for Remos Aircraft. She has 30 years of experience as a consultant in aviation and manufacturing.
“Gretchen Jahn brings a level of understanding to our business that will have a direct positive effect on our customers,” said Remos CEO Edward Roberto. “A pilot for over 20 years and an aircraft owner herself, Ms. Jahn understands the relationship between the manufacturer and the customer.”
Jahn was most recently director of Knotridge Ltd. and provided strategic consulting services to businesses in aviation and manufacturing industries. Prior to leading Knotridge, Jahn was the general manager of Alpha Aviation of New Zealand. During her tenure with Mooney Airplane Company, she is credited with doubling the production rate, bringing two new models to market, and solidifying the bond that Mooney owners have with the factory, a Remos statement said.
“It is our goal to demonstrate a level of commitment to our customers that will build confidence in the Remos brand and will truly set us apart from every other light sport aircraft being manufactured today,” Jahn said.
As an avid pilot for 20 years, she is a member of The Ninety-Nines and the Colorado Pilots Association, and serves on the board of the Air Race Classic. She has competed in air racing.
